This year's edition of the Microcosm is dedicated to all of us at Simmons. Despite all of our 
differences, we have one thing in common: Simmons College. This year we came one step closer to 
being the people we want to be. Simmons students share the desire to be educated at an institution 
which prizes integrity, intelligence, community, and readiness for our chosen vocations. Simmons 
College founder John Simmons' will reads: 

"It is my will to found and endow an institution to be called Simmons Female College, for the purpose of 
teaching medicine , music, drawing, designing, telegraphy, and other branches of art, science, and industry 
best calculated to enable the scholars to acquire an independent livelihood. " 



Today, education must also prepare us for world citizenship and the responsibilies inherent to being 
responsible members of our many communities. At Simmons College we have learned from many 
different perspectives about many different topics in the hope of being the best, most productive 
people we can be. This edition is for us, the Simmons College community!

I am optimistic*** 

A letter from the president 



Dear Simmons Class of 2009: 

Whenever something truly momentous occurs, we all tend to remember that event 
by recalling where we were at the time it happened. For Simmons seniors, you will 
surely remember that you were here on the campus when the world-wide financial 
disaster struck. How your lives evolve after Simmons will surely be affected by what 
has transpired, but it will not be defined by it unless you allow that to happen. 

You are at a pivotal demarcation point in your own lives. How you choose to move 
forward upon leaving Simmons is entirely within your control. The fact that the 
world has financially turned upside down can be something you use to your 
advantage when others are cowed by uncertainty and fear. Making the most of a 
difficult circumstance is a challenge you will face over and over again, so learning 
to capitalize on difficulty is a skill you can use for the rest of your lives. 

The Simmons women who have gone before you are great role models for the lives 
you can live. As you go forth, keep in mind that they have faced the challenges you 
will and that they are there for you when you need to be encouraged or refreshed. 
You are joining an important and powerful sisterhood, and they welcome you with 
open arms. 



I wish you the best of everything in your future. 
Warmly, 



Helen G. Drinan 



President

Internships at Simmons 



Internships are an integral part of the Simmons curriculum. These real- world experiences allow 
Simmons women to gain practical experience in their fields of interest, understand the daily 
demands of work, learn to take risks, make their voices stronger, build confidence, and gather 
new perspectives. Under faculty guidance, students may spend at least one semester interning at 
a company related to their academic major. Many of these internships lead to job offers. This 
year, Simmons students are exploring their passions by working at Neiman Marcus, Isabella 
Stewart Gardner Museum, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Smash Advertising, and Boston 
Magazine. Participating in internships provides Simmons students with necessary experience and 
professional connections for the rest of their lives.

Independent Study at Simmons 




Students at Simmons gain real-world experience by doing fieldwork and other forms of 
independent study, fulfilling the graduation requirement. The possibilities for fieldwork are 
numerous and focus on research or other applied learning experiences in any field or area of 
study. With faculty assistance, many students develop independent study projects on 
subjects of their choice. These projects require motivation, self-discipline, and innovative 
thinking, as students meet infrequently with their advisors and are mostly self-directed, 
depending on the subject. The independent study experience is often a precursor to an 
optional thesis, which is available to students as a culminating project with tangible results. 
Some departments require students to complete a thesis in order to receive Honors in that 
subject. Whether or not students choose to write a thesis, the Simmons independent study 
experience allows students to gain experience in a topic of interest beyond what they learn 
in the classroom.

the new School of Managment building 

This semester, the Simmons School of Management (SOM) 
moved into a new building on the academic campus. Dean 
Deborah Merrill-Sands described the move as "the most 
exciting change thats happened to the School of Management 
in decades." Previously the Simmons management program was 
divided between two separate campuses: the graduate students 
and faculty at 409 Commonwealth Avenue and the 
undergraduate students and faculty in a wing of the Main 
College Building. Now, the two branches are together in the 
new, environment-friendly building. 

Merrill-Sands expects the building to give the management 
programs more of a presence on campus, and hopes more 
undergraduate students will consider management as a major. 

The new building is the first at Simmons to be built in 
accordance with the U.S. Green Building Councils Leadership 
in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. The 
LEED standards are a set of sustainability specifications that set 
the national standard for high-performance, sustainable, and 
energy-efficient buildings. Simmons has applied for LEED 
Silver certification and, if approved, will be the fourth higher 
education institution in the Boston area to have a building 
certified at the Silver level or higher. 

The new building consumes 34 percent less water and 38 
percent less energy than a non-certified like-sized building 
would. Some features include dual-flush toilets, bike racks, 
electronically controlled heating and cooling systems, and 
recyclable collection areas throughout the building. Ten 
percent of the content of all building materials were from 
recycled materials, and 92 percent of the construction waste 
was either recycled or reused. 

Most importantly, bringing the SOM to 300 The Fenway 
unites all of the Simmons schools in one location, linked by a 
brand-new campus quad.

Study Abroad through Simmons 




This was the tenth consecutive year of Simmons study 
abroad courses. Under the direction of a Simmons faculty 
member, many students participated in an intensive study 
abroad course for two to four weeks after meeting during the 
previous semester as preparation. In January 2009, David 
Gullette, Jean Christoffersen, and Toni Tasker took students 
to San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua for Service Learning courses. 
In May-June 2009, students studied a variety of disciplines in 
India, Brazil, Austria, Central Europe, China, Egypt, 
England, Italy, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, Uganda, 
Washington D.C., and Ghana. The Summer 2009 programs 
visited Romania and South Korea. Simmons students also 
participated in Colleges of the Fenway and other schools' 
study abroad courses. 




Even though Simmons does not offer our own semester- long 
programs, our students are encouraged to discover more 
about their chosen discipline through travel with other 
universities. It is common for an Arts Administration 
student to spend a semester in Italy, or an Economics major 
to go to London.

Senior Class Council members and events 



Seniors managed to balance academics, 
extracurricular activities, and internships 
while finding time for fun through events 
such as the Witches Brew, held this year 
at the Beacon Street Tavern, and the 
Bertuccis fundraiser. Seniors marked the 
countdown to Commencement with a 99 
days party at Felt and a 50 days party at 
the Improv Asylum, both had a good 
turnout. Other traditional events like the 
Senior/Faculty Toast and Senior/Faculty 
Banquet reinforced the cherished 
relationships between students and faculty 
members nurtured during the seniors time 
at Simmons. October's Toast brought 300 
students and faculty members together in 
the Linda K. Paresky Conference Center 
to kick off the academic year. They came 
together again at the end of the year for 
the Senior/Faculty Banquet, held in 
Bartol Hall.

Honors Convocation 



Classes were cancelled on the afternoon of 
September 10th, 2008 so that all Simmons 
students and faculty could attend the Honors 
Convocation in the Holmes Sports Center. The 
event, which was originally called "Founders Day," 
now has several meanings. While Honors 
Convocation still honors Simmons College 
founder John Simmons, it is also a celebration of 
the graduating class, Dean's List students, and 
entering first-year students. Students, faculty, and 
staff watched as Simmons seniors entered the 
gymnasium donning their caps and gowns for the 
first time. 

Several administrators, including President Helen 
Drinan, gave a welcome address. A speech by 
Loung Ung, author of Lucky Child, followed, as she 
delivered heartfelt advice to Simmons students. 
Ung, having lost her parents and several siblings to 
the Cambodian genocide, reminded students not 
to forget the importance of spending time with 
their families. 

As a new tradition, for the first time Simmons 
seniors presented the incoming first-year students 
with Simmons Class of 2012 pins to wear at their 
own graduation. The ceremony was followed by 
an outdoor reception.

Senior /Faculty Toast 



Fifty bottles of champagne disappeared in less than 
an hour as members of the Simmons community 
celebrated at the Senior/Faculty Toast. The event 
took place in the Linda K. Paresky Conference 
Center on Oct. 22. Doors opened at 5:30 p.m. and 
people stayed until the last drop of champagne was 
gone. Members of the senior class spoke, including 
President Jessica Kowalski and Vice President 
Rahala Alam. Sheila Murphy, Dean for Student 
Life, gave remarks on behalf of the college. Professor 
Sarah Leonard spoke about her hopes for the senior 
class and toasted to the road ahead. 

Students mingled with their professors while a slide 
show of pictures played in the background. In 
addition to the champagne, there was a fondue 
table, cheese, crackers, and fruit. The toast is one of 
the many senior events that takes place at Simmons 
each academic year.

Witches ' Brew 



Witches' Brew took place this year at 
the Beacon Street Tavern, 1032 
Beacon Street, from 8-10 p.m. on 
October 30, 2008. Senior Simmons 
students gathered in tavern to socialize 
at this popular annual masquerade 
party. More than fifty senior students 
packed the small room. The bartender, 
a Simmons alumna, served a special 
"witches' brew" created for Simmons. 

Amazing appetizers cooked by Tavern 
staff included vegetarian spring rolls, 
duck dumplings, calamari, and a variety 
of other savory delights. Students wore 
elaborate and festive costumes to 
celebrate Halloween, senior year, and 
the end of midterms. 

This successful event was planned by 
the Senior Council and was only the 
beginning of a series of exciting senior 
events for the class of 2009.

This year the Class Council of 201 1 
hosted the first Late Night Cookies 'n 
Cocoa event. We provided hot 
chocolate and cookies to decorate as a 
way to de stress during the late hours 
of studying. We also sponsored two 
bake sales one co-sponsored with the 
Class of 2012. We are hosting May 
Day which has been a Simmons 
tradition for almost 100 years. This 
year May Day was based on the idea of 
spring renewal and a healthy new you. 
To keep things busy we hosted a Salsa 
Cruise collaborated with BSO, Class 
of 2010, the Economics Liaison, and 
OLA on May 1st. We have also

With a new academic year came a new group of Simmons women. The Class of 2012 arrived on 
campus ready for a challenging, fulfilling, and fantastic year ahead. They wasted no time in 
getting involved with their new community, assuming leadership roles in their Class Council, 
Hall Councils, the Student Government Association, and various other Simmons organizations. 

With the help of the wonderful Simmons staff, the Class Council of 2012 successfully sponsored 
the annual Winter Wonderland dinner on December 3rd. The Simmons tradition provided 
students, faculty, and staff with a chance to get together and enjoy holiday themed cuisine, music, 
and decorations. 

Members of the Class of 2012 got to know one another through shared classes, community events, 
group outings, and lazy days in the dorms. In their first year at Simmons, they adjusted to college' 
level work, made new friends, and began to make their mark. With their first-year jitters behind 
them and a new place to call home, the Class of 2012 looks forward to their future years at 
Simmons.

The Office of Student Leadership and Activities (OSLA) coordinates programs throughout the year to 
enrich the Simmons College experience and encourage active campus life at Simmons. One of the most 
popular is Family Weekend, an annual event in which students are encouraged to share their experiences 
at college with their families. This year's Family Weekend featured a trolley tour of Boston by Beantown 
Trolley, in which some members of the OSLA staff participated. Another important tradition is the 
Colleges of the Fenway Spring Week and Carnival, a week at the end of the school year concluding with 
a carnival held on campus, in which the six Colleges of the Fenway celebrate the end of the year. OSLA 
also manages the Student Center, which is home to organization offices, student publications, and the 
Student Box Office. Leah Derderian, a Simmons junior, was the Orientation Chair this year, planning 
student orientation during the summer. OSLA also oversees the Emerging Leaders Program, the Student 
Leadership Selection Process, and provides leadership development and support to student organizations. 
OSLA is an essential part of the Simmons community, helping the student organizations work together 
to provide activities and events for Simmons students and the broader community.

The Office of Residence Life 

The Office of Residence Life aims to provide Simmons students with a safe and supportive home away from 
home. Each year, Resident Directors and Assistants plan activities and events that encourage students to 
become a part of their community while enriching their academic and personal experiences. Throughout 
the year, students are encouraged to participate in competitions between halls for the Simmons Cup. Some 
of the events include a cookie bake-off, Festival of Lights, Simmons Rockstar, and a field day event, that 
creates a fun rivalry between halls. 

In fall of 2008, the residents of Morse Hall created a Shock Factor Wall, where students posted their 
reactions to the recent incidents of hate. The first floor lobby was covered from wall to wall with messages 
of comfort to the victim and individual community members' reactions to the incident. This wall stayed up 
for a month, after which it was eventually moved to the academic campus for all members of the Simmons 
community to see. These messages were emotional, heartfelt, shocking, and showed that Simmons students 
unite in trying times.

Like Minds Coalition & I 

the Students Against Hate Movement 



In spring 2008, hate crimes took place on campus in 
which students were targeted based on race, religion, 
and sexual orientation. The students were greatly 
saddened and disappointed by these events, and took 
action launching a campaign of posters and buttons, 
which were distributed throughout the main and 
residential campuses. The main theme was "Not in 
my hall, not in my home, not at my Simmons." 

In fall of 2008, when more incidents of hate were 
reported, students were shocked and ready to once 
again fight back through peaceful movements such as 
Sit Down to Stand Up, a six-hour sit-in at Java City. 
The Like Minds Coalition, a Student Government 
Association-run group took charge and organized a 
Bartol takeover, in which the coalition let it be 
known that Simmons will not tolerate hate. They 
distributed contracts for students to sign to declare 
that they also would not tolerate hate. The Muslim 
community also expressed their opposition to hate 
with Head Scarves Against Hate, an event in which 
they distributed headscarves to the student body for 
students to wear. This coincided with a community 
forum that was organized by the faculty of the college 
to address the incidents and explain the action the 
college was taking to combat the incidents of hate. 
Facebook groups were created, and the membership 
in these groups reached large numbers. The Simmons 
College community demonstrated that we will not 
tolerate hate.

Orientation and First Year Experience I 




Orientation and FYE classes helped first-year students and new transfer students make friends and 
become acquainted with Simmons. Prior to Fall Orientation, Orientation Leaders communicated with 
incoming students via email and Facebook. During the Fall Orientation students participated in many 
activities to share their interests and introduce them to other new students. Activities varied depending 
on the orientation group, but students had the opportunity to get to know Boston as well as Simmons. 
During Orientation first-year students were required to meet with their academic advisor and had the 
opportunity to learn about the many resources that would assist them during their time at Simmons. 
The Office of Student Leadership and Activities worked hard to make sure that orientation went 
smoothly. The success of this event was due in large part to Leah Derderian, class of '10, this year's 
Orientation Chair. 

First- Year Experience (F.Y.E) is the class that introduces Simmons students to the resources and 
opportunities available to them at Simmons. This class focused on different themes each week, and 
brought students together to talk about their successes and difficulties during their first semester.

Family Involvement 



Family is one of the most important things to a Simmons 
undergrad. They have been involved from the first day of the 
semester, when family and friends helped students move into 
their new homes. 

Families continued to be involved during the semester as they 
visited for weekends and special events. Family Weekend 2008 
took place on October 17-19. This was another chance for 
parents to reunite with their daughters. This year's Family 
Weekend activities, planned by the Office of Student Life, 
included yoga, lectures by professors, a trolley tour of Boston, 
and dinner at Vinny T's. A highlight of the weekend was the 
annual President's Brunch, held at the Boston Sheraton, where 
President Drinan formally greeted Simmons family-members. 
These activities allowed students to share their interests with 
family members, and gave the families a taste of life at Simmons. 

On Friday evening of Family Weekend, the Simmons Crew Boat 
Naming ceremony took place to celebrate 30 years of Simmons 
Crew and dedicate the new rowing shell. This took place in 
preparation for the Head of the Charles Regatta on the 
following Saturday and Sunday. 

At the Regatta, which is always attended by many Simmons 
families in support of Simmons Crew, the crew team surpassed 
their previous records and won big in the competition. 

Of course, parents were not the only ones invited to Simmons 
during the year. Many friends of students visited the campus 
also. This enabled students to expand their "family" of friends 
and meet students from other colleges in the area. 

One of the most important families on the campus is the 
Simmons family, made up of students, faculty and staff. To many 
students, Simmons is a home away from home, with a new and 
more diverse family.

The Scott/Ross Center for Community Service 



The Scott/Ross Center facilitates service learning for the members of the community through its 
partnerships with schools and other organizations throughout the Greater Boston Community. These 
programs are often implemented in courses, in which students are asked to participate in Service 
Learning to reinforce the classroom curriculum with hands-on experience. 

In the fall, the Scott/Ross Center hosts a safe Halloween party for the children who participate in the 
programs. Many of these children come from places where it is not safe to go trick-or-treating and this 
party provides them with a safe place to celebrate the holiday. The children are attend the party 
dressed in costume, and many Simmons students working wear costumes.

2008-2009 SGA Executive Board: France Belizaire, President; Shelaigh Hyde, Treasurer; Aliaa 
Ghonim, Vice President (Fall Semester); Necy Lopes, Like Minds Chair; Valerie Duvelson, Student 
Affairs Officer (Fall Semester); Alicia Jade Lochard, Academic Affairs Officer. 

SGA represents the executive branch of the entire student body. The primary focus of SGA is to meet as i 
board regularly to discuss relevant bureaucratic matters within the student body as well as within the 
administration. Under the Student Government exists six committees: Awards/ Nominations, Election, 
Student Finance Board, Student Advisors on Multiculturalism, Academic Affairs, and Women's College 
Week Committees. SGA also brings most organizations together through weekly Senate meetings. The 
theme for this year's senate was A.C.T.I.O.N. 

In the fall, when the community was dealing with incidents of hate that happened on campus, the SGA's 
Like Minds Coalition took over Bartol to share their disdain for the events that had occurred. France 
Belizaire, spoke out at this meeting, and allowed Simmons a glimpse at her emotions, as she was brought t< 
tears. 

The members of the SGA are leaders, who do a lot of behind-the'Scenes work for the communtiy. Dean ol 
Student Life, Sheila Murphy, often attends meetings to discuss the vision for Simmons' future. These 
women are unafraid to express concerns to the administration, and to discuss the positive outcomes from 
those plans.

The Presidential Election 2008 

Barack Obama brought the historic 2008 election to a close with a stunning 
victory on Nov. 4. Obama, the Democratic nominee for president, won 364 
electoral votes, while his opponent, Republican candidate John McCain, 
won 163. The Democratic Party also celebrated a 57 seat majority in the 
Senate, and a 255 seat majority in the House of Representatives. 

Obama goes down in the record books not only as the first black man 
elected president, but also as a major factor in the record-breaking voter 
turnout. The voter turnout was higher than America has seen in at least 40 
years. 

Youth votes were particularly impressive. An estimated 24 million 
Americans ages 18-29 voted in this election. This number is a 2.2 million 
increase from the 2004 election. This makes the youth voter turnout for the 
2008 election between 49.3 and 54-5 percent. The youth vote proved to be 
crucial to Obama's victory. 68 percent of people ages 18-29 voted for 
Obama, while 30 percent voted for McCain. 

While the presidential election was monumental in record-breaking and 
new direction in America, the state initiatives also took strides towards a 
changed nation. In Massachusetts, 70 percent of voters chose not to cut 
the state income tax for Question 1. In Question 2, 65 percent of voters 
decided to decriminalize marijuana, making possession of small amounts of 
the illegal drug finable, but not a felony. For Question 3, Massachusetts 
residents voted 62 percent to abolish greyhound racing in the state. 

Other states shared similar results to those of Massachusetts. Michigan 
became the 13th state to legalize medical marijuana when they approved 
the measure by 63 percent on Nov. 4. In North Dakota, voters rejected an 
income tax initiative similar to Question 1 in Massachusetts. 

Same-sex couples were a matter of public interest as America watched 52.5 
percent of California pass Proposition 8, a measure repealing the right of 
same-sex couples to marry. Arkansas also passed a law that prohibits 
unmarried sexual partners from adopting children or serving as foster 
parents. This measure applies to opposite and same-sex couples.

a letter from France Belizaire '09 

Class of 2009, 

Ok ladies, it's crazy but we made it! ! Who thought that the time would go so 
fast? I can still remember Orientation. The theme for our year was "Soaring to 
New Heights" and I believe that we have reached major heights in the years 
we have spent here. 

We will cross the stage as true Simmons Women prepared for the world ahead 
of us. Before you close this chapter in your life, remember: 

Your first class and how you felt getting your first syllabus I thought "dag, 
there's a lot to read;" 

Leaving Bartol, but not leaving the smell behind I had a bartol shirt LOL! 

Simmons Cup; 

Staying up late for that paper you should have done last week... I had a few of 
those. 

Every significant moment that contributed to your Simmons experience has 
made you the Simmons women that you are. 

I will remember this moment I sat down to write this letter to a group of 
powerful, dynamic, inspiring, intelligent, and charitable leaders of tomorrow. I 
am proud to stand with you and be among the greatness. Simmons will miss 
us, but we will make Simmons proud. 

Congratulations Class of 2009! ! ! ! !

Winter Wonderland & the Festival of Lights 



Simmons' Winter Wonderland and Festival of Lights 
took place this year on December 3. Winter Wonderland 
was held in Bartol Hall beginning at 5pm. The feast 
featured the popular prime rib and turkey main courses, 
as well as a variety of side dishes, including mashed 
potatoes, cranberry relish, stuffing, and green bean 
casserole, served by President Drinan and Jeff Stone. 
Desserts included apple crisp and chocolate cake. Bartol 
was truly a sight to behold, festooned with white 
snowflake decorations, and the furniture pushed back to 
create a larger serving area. While in past years Winter 
Wonderland has been an occasion for elaborate live 
entertainment, with crowds of people, this year's 
celebration reflected the mood of upcoming exams and 
the ongoing financial crisis of the country. The music 
was soft but cheery, piped out over the dining hall's 
sound system. The class of 2012 did an amazing job 
putting this all together. 

The Festival of Lights was preceded by residence hall 
decorating parties, and culminated with a gathering of 
students in Quadside, in the Smith Hall basement. 
Festival of Lights is always an opportunity for students to 
share their holiday traditions, and to learn about other 
winter holidays. This year was especially important, as 
students strove in the wake of campus hate crimes to find 
togetherness and work toward a more cohesive and 
supportive community. Congratulations to the 
upperclass women in Smith and Evans Hall 
(SMEVANS) who won the hall decorating contest!

The Simmons Soiree 




This year's Soiree took place at Fenway Park's 
State Street Pavilion on February 27th. The 
Simmons Soiree is a traditional Simmons 
event, and gives students a chance to spend a 
night on the town, dressed to the nines. 

As soon as tickets went on sale, students lined 
up at the student box office. They hoped to 
dance all night at the famous home of the Red 

Sox. 

With excitement running high, tickets sold out 
in record time: two days! 

The night of the Soiree, the residence halls 
were a-buzz with Simmons women and their 
dates searching for the perfect accessories for a 
night at Fenway Park. 

Outside of Simmons Hall, a red carpet lined 
the walkway to their trolley, making students 
stars for the night. 

At the park Simmons students and guests were 
able to dance and mingle with friends inside 
the pavilion. In addition, they had the 
opportunity to explore and walk around 
Fenway Park, making this an extra special 
occasion. 

Congratulations to the wonderful women of 
CAB, who put on an amazing night for the 
Simmons community!

V-Day and the Vagina Monologues 



Vagina Monologues, written by Eve Ensler, is performed 
yearly around the world to help raise money and awareness 
to stop violence against women and girls. 

Each year the V-DAY campaign focuses on one place in 
the world to end the violence against women and girls, and 
this year the spotlight was on the Democratic Republic of 
Congo. 

This year's production of Vagina Monologues at Simmons 
College raised over $5000 through raffles, silent auctions, 
Vagina Monologues merchandise, vaginally- inspired deserts 
and snacks, and ticket sales. All of the proceeds were 
donated to the V-DAY campaign, a shelter in San Juan del 
Sur, Nicaragua, and The Womansplace Crisis Center in 
Brockton, Massachusetts.

You have traveled far and beyond our 
expectations, and we have seen you 
evolve into a vibrant young woman. By 
having achieved so much you have 
already succeeded in our eyes. We wish 
you an equal if not better future once 
you leave and step into a new venture. 

Love Mom and Dad

Dear Liz: 

You have grown from a beautiful baby we held so lovingly so many years ago to a beautiful young woman 

both inside and out. The years of watching you participate in ballet, soccer, gymnastics, tennis, softball 

and hockey have gone by so quickly, but no matter what you were doing the joy was simply watching 

you. We have watched your growing independence and hard work at Simmons. We are so proud of your 

accomplishments. We love you and are proud to call you our daughter. 

Love, 

Mom and Dad

I am an angler. I am not alone. I am real. I am not lazy. I am a doer. I am a football fan. I am thankful 

I am thankful... 

a note of thanks from the Editor-in-Chief 

This is the 99th edition of the Simmons College Microcosm Yearbook, and I am thankful to be 
part of this tradition. Since 1910, The Microcosm has chronicled the lives of Simmons 
students and I hav been able to dive through all of these editions with the help of the Archives. 
The Archives have been a tremendous help and I would like to thank them for their continued 
support of the yearbook over the years. If you ever get the chance, visit the Archives office on 
the second floor of Beatley Library, it is always a rewarding experience. 

I would like to specifically thank Susan, Tom, and Caren for whose advice and support has 
helped me through all fours years at Simmons. Nora, you rock! Thank you for all of your hard 
work and patience with me; I will miss you next year. The members of the Voice, especially 
Traci, Shannon, and Meredith: thank you for your writers and making the Publications Suite 
the happening place to be. And to everyone who donated their time and skills: I love you! 

To the Class of 2009, we have finally made it! Thank you for all of your help, time, photos, 
and support. As you go out into the world, remember that we are all family and that even 
though we have left campus, we will always have a special connection that ties us together: We 
are Simmons. 

Cheers! 

Sam Furbush '09 




The 2009 Microcosm Yearbook of Simmons College was created by a student staff and printed by Jostens Publishing Company. Our Simmons 
staff advisor was Susan Chudd, Assistant Director of Student Leadership and Activities. Our Jostens representative was Tom Keeley, and our 
publishing consultant was Alyssa Murray. All of these pages were designed on Jostens' Yearbook Avenue online program and were submitted 
electronically. The headline, sub-headline, and copy font was Goudy Old Style, and the pages numbers were in Times. Davor Photography, of 
Herff Jones, shot all of the senior portraits and candids where stated. The 2009 Microcosm had a press run of 250 copies, and was sold for $40- 
$50 depending on the time of year. The Microcosm has been the official yearbook of Simmons College since 1910. 
Editorial content of the yearbook does not necessarily reflect the views of Simmons College.
